Nick Heys, Artex International CEO, honored with “Outstanding Contribution by an Individual” at UK & European Captive Services 2017 Awards

Artex is proud to announce that Nick Heys, Artex International’s CEO, has been recognized with the “Outstanding Contribution by an Individual” award at the UK & European Captive Services 2017 Awards. Captive Review, a niche publication and website dedicated to the interests of risk management and captive insurance, hosted the event in London on 10 October 2017, handing out 28 different awards.

The judging panel was comprised of insurance and captive management professionals with deep expertise in the industry. After reviewing the nominations and selecting Nick as the winner, the judges commented that: “Nick Heys, as managing director, was a key player in the growth of Heritage Insurance Management into Europe’s largest independent captive manager, up until its acquisition by Artex Risk Solutions. When Artex bought Heritage in 2014, the manager had grown from establishment in 1993 to revenue of around $20m, more than 100 employees and with operations in Guernsey, Malta, Gibraltar and London. Since the acquisition, Heys has taken on the role of CEO of Artex International, overseeing growing operations across Europe, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. He is well respected and held in high regard by clients, fellow service providers and the wider insurance management industry.”

David McManus, Artex’s President and Chief Executive Officer remarked, “Nick has a long and proven career within the insurance and alternative risk market. His strength and leadership are driving our continued growth and expansion in European and International markets.”

Nick Heys replied, “I am humbled to have been recognized by my peers with this award. While it acknowledges my past experience, I am very much looking forward to what the future will bring to Artex and our International operations.”
